Reviews of A Battle History of the Imperial Japanese Navy, 1941-1945

Overall customer rating: 4.000

Detailed Information Yes, Narrative, No

by DEitel on Jul 23, 2009

This book provides extensive information as to exactly what Japanese ships were involved in which actions in the Pacific War of WWII. If thats what you are seeking, this is the book for you. However, its not a great read in that there is scarce background information as to the who and why of any actions described, the general actions being described with little if any interesting details, not much information on the people side of the Japanese fleet (other than names). A thorough record, but not an exceptional piece of historical writing.


An excellent book.

Well written, thoroughly researched and unafraid to call a spade a spade. A major contribution to studies of WW2 and should be in any student's library of the Pacific War.
